"Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" has been checked and is in the Public Domain. The remaining two. The original Flash Gordon, and Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars are still under copyright if I'm not mistaken.

I'm curious as to where you acquired your information stating that "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" is still under copyright.

In the past two months I've had two films removed based on erroneous copyright claims so forgive me if I sound a little defensive.

The "Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe" serial was not renewed and is public domain. There might be soom room for people to argue that the underlying rights in the character, etc. prevent elements of the film being used out of context, but that shouldn't impact the inclusion of the complete episodes of the serial here or anywhere else.
